The original market building is quite attractive, although most of the action is outside.
Inside there are a lot of meat vendors, as well as a very popular cheese stand, where I got some lovely 2 year old cheddar. There are a couple of bakeries, but one is a chain from Toronto. The other is a British bakery, with a sincere dedication to the white, bland and pasty - it doesn't make me sorry to have to pass it by. Eggs at the far end, as well as Southern Charm Poultry, which carries an impressive range. Look here for ducks, quails, and "capon sized" chickens.*
As well as the cheese, we got some eggs, but as I said, most of the action was outside. We bought some of these beautiful cauliflowers and broccoli, the first of the season.
And a flat of strawberries, probably the last of the season. However, cherries, raspberries and currants are poised to take their place.
The haul. Oh boy, that looks good. Peas... cherries... spinach... mutant radishes... there are some carrots buried back in there too, also the first of the season. I found some basil (but alas no mint, parsley or dill.) Look for these goodies coming soon to a food blog near you!
